Explosive batsman David Warner was on Wednesday named the Australian Test player of the year. He also defeated captain Steve Smith for the prestigious Allan Border medal.

The 29-year-old aggressive southpaw received 240 votes to win Australian cricket’s highest individual prize and also got six more votes than Smith to be named Test player of the year.

Warner, who was named Test vice-captain of his side last year, notched up the fastest century, his 16th, at the Sydney Cricket Ground while playing against West Indies this summer.

Meanwhile, all-rounder Glenn Maxwell was named as the one-day-international player of the year and Adam Voges as the domestic player of the year.
